I mentioned the other day that I’d started my Christmas shopping online. Today a lot of the items I’d ordered began to arrive. A crucial part of my strategy to avoid telling people what I’ve got them is to decide who gets what at the last minute.
But this poses a problem when it comes to opening all the packages when they arrive at the castle. I can’t use scissors safely because of my tics, but if I asked Innes or Leftwing Idiot to help they’d get to know what’s in the present pool.
This year I’ve found a brilliant solution: Nimble – a safe one handed finger-cutter.
You put this little tool on your finger and its tiny blade, too small to penetrate skin, comes out when you press it against a hard object, like a box or a packet.
It’s allowed me to unwrap all my deliveries safely, discretely, and independently.
So while my Christmas gifts remain a secret, I thought it was time to shout about Nimble so that this magic thimble doesn’t elude anyone who could use it.
